Movember 2012: Part One

This past week saw the start of this year’s Movember campaign, a month-long event in which folks grow and sustain moustaches for the four weeks of November to raise funds for men’s health, particularly, prostate cancer and, now, mental health. And, for the first time, albeit starting a little late, I’ve decided to participate.

In addition to supporting prostate cancer, Movember recently decided to add men’s mental health to its causes. This means that the funds raised this year by Mo-Bros will go towards both prostate cancer programs (60 per cent) and men’s mental health initiatives (40 per cent).

Since this is such a great cause that has a personal relevance for just about everyone, I’ve decided that it’s time for me to do my part to contribute and raise awareness. Despite the fact that I may look ridiculous in a moustache, I’ll be growing one in an attempt to raise funds and posting photos tracking my Mogress on my Mofile.

Additionally, every week throughout the month, I’ll be featuring other first-time Mo-Bros. In particular, I’ll be sharing their motivations for participating.

So, stay tuned!
